      Description

      Moved from old jira - 669. Placeholder for the feature.


      Having gotten the USPS rate estimator working... I'm realizing that in order for it to be useful we need to get an accurate estimate of which box will be needed, and how much it weighs with packing materials.
      Proposed Scheme
      Add a new table for shipping boxes...
      box id
      height
      width
      depth
      height uom
      width uom
      depth uom

      usable height
      usable width
      usable depth
      usable height uom
      usable width uom
      usable depth uom
      weight
      weight uom
      etc

      Algorithm...
      1.) Requires all products height >= width >= depth... or have the dimensions ordered that way for algorithm
      2.) Find Maximum Height Width and Depth of any product
      3.) Calculate total shipping volume for all products
      4.) For all boxes in the above table, sort by usable volume that is greater than total shipping volume.
      5.) Searching box by box, accept the first box that is large enough in every dimension (max length, max width, max height).
      6.) Add the weight of this box to the product weight... and use this for shipping.
